An End and a Beginning

Hi folks,

I’m talking about my writing process again today.  This time I’ll explore a bit about the beginnings and the ending of a series, how I get them going, and how I bring them to a close.

Actually, I don’t have all that much to do with it.  The characters come to me, tell me the stories, and I write them down.  I’ve written a number of series, a couple of trilogies, and a few stand alones that eventually morphed into something more.  Case in point, the Children of the Goddess Series began with the stand alone, Lady Blue, written to draw attention to the horror of enforced child prostitution.  This eventually grew into a series of six books, and #7, the final chapter in the series in now a finished first draft.

The Children of the Wild began as my take on the popular vampire theme.  I gave them a different beginning, and a different way of life.  People asked for more, the characters asked for more, and so it began.  Race the Wind is the latest book in that series.  Find it here:

Amazon   Apple   Google Play

This series is showing no signs of wanting to be finished, so you can look for many more stories from the Children of the Wild.

So, now with the tales from the Children of the Goddess coming to a close, I’m waiting to see who shows up next to tell me of their experiences, I mean, besides Lady Hawk.  That girl has dozens more stories to tell.

While I’m waiting for the next long story arc to show up and demand to be told,  perhaps I’ll work on a few stand alone tales.  What do you suggest?

 

As Promised, It’s Here!

Hi folks,

Well, my last post gave you an idea of what was coming.  Now you can see for yourself.  Deliberate Love is here, and here’s how to find it.  Give it a read and let me know what you think of the whole concept.

The Book

 

So, there we are, the second of the (self-help) books. hehehe

On to other news, we’re hoping to have a new installment in the Children of the Wild series soon.  I’ll keep you posted on that.

So long for now

Watch Out!

Hi folks,

Recently I told you about trying and failing to write a self help book, and how I put the principals into two romance novels.  The first of which is Ten Day Turnaround.  Get a better look at it here:

look deeper here

 

Now we’re about to bring you the second of the two novels.  This one stirred up some controversy and ruffled a few feathers the first time I published it.  Yes we updated it, but I didn’t change the story.  Why not?  Here’s why.

I first wrote this story in the early years of this century to honor two couple of my acquaintance who have deliberately flown in the face of conventional thinking.  Couple number one is a man and woman who have been married many years, have children, several grandchildren, and perhaps even great grandchildren by now.  He is admittedly homosexual. But to avoid public censure, he married the girl from next door.  They dote on each other, love each other deeply, and he swears he has no regrets.

The second couple is two divorcees who were friends, one lesbian, and the other not.  They moved in together, became lovers, and are still together many years later.  Again, they love each other deeply.

Both couples asked for anonymity and I have respected that, opting instead to weave what they taught me into the story.  Please enjoy and know my only agenda in writing this was to honor these brave and heroic people.

 

Well, that’s it for this time.  Keep an eye out for Deliberate Love to appear for sale sometime next week.  (if the gods are willing)

Turn it Around!

Hi folks,

I’ve written before about how I once attempted to write a self-help book, but failed to finish it.  It was boring to say the least.  However, I believed in what I had to offer, and I still do.  Back then I changed directions and put the information into a number of sweet romance stories, primarily two.  I present to you now the first of those two stories.

e-book

Go ahead, check it out, a good story and lots of other interesting stuff is just waiting for you.  All in time for the New Year’s resolutions. (tee hee)

Now, having said that, I hope to have the second of those two stories ready for you sometime in January, so keep an eye on this blog for updates.

 

Okay, now I have gifts to wrap, so, bye for now. 🙂

Weekend Delight

Hi folks,

I know I’ve been telling you about the Children of the Wild series, but it’s the weekend, time to kick back with a big mug of tea and relax with a sweet romance.  Here it is.  This one took a while to get ready, but here she is in all her glory.

e-book

 

Harmony Rupert was a typical university student, mired in debt, working two jobs, and trying to finish her education. That all changed when she began a study of historical arranged marriage. Her excitement about the project changes when she finds herself caught up in the process and wakes up beside a total stranger.

 

So there you go, pick up your copy today, make that pot of tea, then relax back and enjoy.

Also, keep your eye out for something new soon and remember to sign up for the newsletter for a sneak peek inside the covers.

She’s Back!

Hey folks,

Well, we finally got it done.  Shortly after the attack of September 2001, the shockwaves touched far more lives than one would believe.  A few months after that I wrote a story about one of those unexpected victims.  Recently we took the book down and gave it a new edit and a new cover.  I’m pleased to tell you she’s back and ready for your inspection.  Here’s Kassidy.

e-book

This is a sweet romance about taking chances, accepting risks, and finding ways to live up to and beyond expectations, of being true to yourself while embracing another.  Go ahead, check it out.  It’s a good read and it’ll help you pass the time until the third Elvish Chronicle comes out later this month.  (Projected publication timeline.)

Free!! Books Free!!!

Hi folks,

So, now that I have your attention, let me tell you the deal and the catch. http://shadoepublishing.com/  is looking for a few ARC readers.  Here’s how it works.  You agree to read the book before it gets published.  When it goes live you have to write a review of said book, post it on Amazon, Goodreads, or wherever you like, and post links to it on social media.  Not such a bad deal at that, right?

Oh, and yes, some of my books will become available to the ARC readers as well as the books from many of the other great writers who publish with Shadoe Publishing.  I expect the third Elvish Chronicle will be one of them.

So, if you’re interested, check it out here: FB ARC Readers

 

Okay, now back to work for me.

Wow! Check it!

Hi Folks,

Well, it seems to be true, the publisher has put Lady Blue up for sale at $.99 and has marked down the rest of my books as well.  Still not sure how I feel about all this, but, I’m trusting that she knows what she’s doing.  Anyway, here a chance to get some bargains.  Since she’s on sale, why not start with Lady Blue?  Here’s the latest review of the book.

What a captivating read. The author has done a marvelous job with her characters, the settings, and the plot. This is one you will not want to put down. The action in this book is amazing and so real to life.

Okay, I can’t waste time puzzling over this development, I’ve got books to write.  Speaking of books, an old favorite has had a new edit, a new cover, and will soon be re-released.  Keep an eye out for At Loose Ends.  Oh, and in a few weeks the latest in the Elvish Chronicles will be released.  Keep an eye out for A Winter Siege.

All right, must get back to work on another Children of the Wild story.  Later folks.

Unexpected Action

Hey Folks,

I recently heard that my publisher http://shadoepublishing.com  has suddenly dropped the price on all my books, even going so far as to drop my best seller to $0.99.  I have to tell you, this move caught me by surprise.  I’ve always thought of her as a rational woman, but there you go.

So, go ahead and check out any and all my books and see for yourself.  http://prudencemacleod.com  Now’s the time to grab a bargain while I try to talk sense to …
